Antonio Conte is holding his press conference following Tottenham’s embarrassing 2-1 defeat against NS Mura, the lowest ranked side in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

The Italian made nine changes to his line-up following the victory against Leeds United in the Premier League on Sunday.

It was the home side who took the lead when Tomi Horvat capitalised on a slip by Davinson Sanchez to cut inside and curl a shot inside the left-hand post with Spurs goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini left watching on helplessly.

Matters got even more difficult for the visitors on 32 minutes when Ryan Sessegnon collected a second yellow card for a needless challenge and got his marching orders on his first start for Tottenham since August.

Conte waited just seven minutes into the second half before making a quadruple substitution with Son Heung-min, Lucas Moura, Eric Dier and Ben Davies replacing Dele Alli, Bryan Gil, Joe Rodon and Matt Doherty.

Spurs did finally grab an equaliser in the 72nd minute when Harry Kane latched on to a Lucas ball that ran all the way through and he chipped over the goalkeeper from a tight angle.
